HOW TO PLAY MY DVDS, AND CONNECT A WII AND PLAYSTATION 2
If you have the Insignia NS-42L550A11 (inputs shown here - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=cat13506&type=page&h=387&skuId=9595066&productId=1218131141674&navigation=prev&count=3&chk=true - or something like it), you might have a hard time plugging all of your devices into the TV.
Your DVD player might have a Component Out - if so, plug it (all 5 plugs) into the "Component" section of the TV. If you don't have a Component video cable, you can simply use a couple of Red, White, and Yellow cables instead - just be sure you connect the proper ends so the colors from the DVD match the colors to the TV.
As for your Wii and Playstation - I believe they both have the simple Red, White, and Yellow output plugs (labeled "AV IN" on the back of your Insignia). Because your TV only has 1 input for "AV IN," you might need to purchase a switch of some kind that you can plug your Wii and Playstation into and the switch will have 1 set of Red, White, and Yellow plugs to hook into the TV. The other option is to simply plug and unplug your Wii or Playstation directly to/from the TV depending on what you're playing... not an ideal scenario (particularly if you don't have easy access to the back of your TV.
The following link is for a 2-way switch that would do what you're looking to do. You could even get a 3-way switch and plug all 3 devices into it if your DVD player doesn't have a Component Out.
